    Looks like it was in salt water for a while. Camera and gimbal are destroyed. Motors are corroded. I doubt there's anything salvageable.
    Even the battery is probably shot.

    "Salt water?" I wonder where they found salt water in Chattanooga? :)

    That's not cool. We should all file a report for that bid.

    Probably the pilot's crashed it into Tennessee River. He says he's found it on the beach but it doesn't make sense.

    The bidding is at $258. What in this could possibly be worth $250? The motors are shot. The NAZA is most likely toast. The GPS receiver is maybe salvageable. I wouldn't give more than $50 for this thing - the shell, legs and the blades.

    May have been vacationing on the beach somewhere and posted when he returned home. This is why I firmly believe in GPS trackers.
